[#20050911200, jdk1.4.2_09, RH Fedora Core 4]
NetBeans does not start with enabled SELinux (Security-enhanced Linux) on 'RH
Fedora Core 4' platform. Nb fails on startup with UnsatisfiedLinkError in libawt.so.
In fact it is JDK1.4.2 problem on 'RH Fedora Core 4' platform, not a Nb issue.
However, we should relese note it since the jdk1.4.2_09 is supported platform
for Nb 5.0 and some users can encounter this problem.
a) disable SELinux temporarily by executing (requires root privilegs):
# setenforce 0
b) Add 'selinux=0'to your kernel command line to turn SELinux off at boot.
Has nothing to do with execution (of user apps).
we'll note it in the release notes
I'm not sure what the exact issue is but this workaround may be impossible to
apply in certain environments. I would suggest to find out the problems
JDB1.4/NB is having, post them here in more detail and contact: Daniel J Walsh
(dwalsh at his site redhat.com). He was handling the security policies (at least
Suggesting users to lower their security is not a good idea.
